    It imported some tracking information and camera perfectly to my scene. bought it after spending a lot of time with the basic importer that could never get it right.

    I bought this plugin with high hopes to help me with working with Fbx files from unity into blender and back to unity. It was recommended to me by a well known unity model and animation asset maker in the unity asset store. Below is a description of the problem. Btw ( i contacted the person that recommended me to buy this plugin and he also ran into the same problem). I contacted the maker of this plugin but no answer so far. Please at least let us know what the issue is and if it can be fixed.

    I imported a perfectly rigged fbx model from unity into blender with betterfbx to add additional blend shapes to use in my game. I tried three different ways to get the model back into unity. Normal fbx export, betterfbx, as a blender file. The model comes into the unity looking normal, but when I apply animations to the model, the entire mesh collapses into a mess.
    I then tested with normal blender fbx import and normal fbx export without betterfbx and it worked perfectly when brought back into unity and the animations.

      Please disable 'Automatic Bone Orientation' if you want to re-use the original animations.

    Exactly what I needed! Working with several teams that use different 3D authoring software, it's been always a headache to import FBXs into Blender seamlessly. Haven't used it for complex scenes, but for rigged game assets it's been working like a charm.

    I have no idea what everyone's talking about. It is not importing any of my fbx files. At least standard blender fbx import hangs but eventually imports. this hangs and then eventually unhangs with no import!

      Hi Annis, this add-on works well with most FBX files, but might have bug with some FBX files, if you encountered issues, please contact me, or you can simply request a refund, no problem.

    I had an FBX model, created with an older tool, that seemed to defy every method I tried to get it loaded into Blender. And then I stumbled upon this add-on and it worked like a charm, first time! Such a good feeling.

    Fixes a glaring deficiency in the otherwise amazing Blender. Additionally in the rare case of problems, support is fantastic. Really grateful to the developer for this essential addon.

    Updates have been coming out continuously for years, bug fixes and new features on a monthly basis. You're certainly getting a good service out of this addon.

    solved my problem of unit and size problem in UE5 but introduced two new little probleme, 1-> exported animation time is incorect but using UE import animated time feature solved the problem
    2-> bind pose not found for all bonne where it was found befor with the blender build in fbx export.
    But in the end it far more better than the orginal fbx exporter of blender.
    only missing support for auto-rig pro addon...
